Default Tamiya Dual Hunter

Hi there, I have just built a Tamiya Dual Hunter and on testing it, found that the front and rear wheels turn in opposite directions, resulting in the car not going anywhere!! I must have missed something simple but can't think what.
Help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

nope, that is impossible with this truck. which ever side is going the right dirrection keep the motor wires in the same spot, and switch the wires on the side that is going the wrong way.

Yep, the gearboxes are pointing in different directions, so you have to reverse one of the motors by switching the wires. I'm pretty sure that it's best to reverse the front gearbox, otherwise they'd be going in the same direction, but that would be reverse.

Thanks a lot guys, switching the wires worked.
Never built a twin motor car before.
